What is Archery?

Archery is a sport that involves shooting a bow and arrow at a target. The sport has been around for thousands of years and was used for hunting and warfare. In modern times, archery has become a popular competitive sport.

In competitive archery, participants compete to see who can shoot the most accurate shots. The targets used in archery competitions are circular and have different scoring zones, with the center of the target worth the most points. Competitors take turns shooting a set number of arrows at the target, and the person with the highest score at the end of the competition is declared the winner.

There are different types of archery competitions, including indoor and outdoor events. Outdoor competitions are typically held on a field or range, while indoor competitions are held in a gymnasium or other large indoor space. In both cases, the targets are set at a specific distance from the shooters.

Competitive archery can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. There are several different organizations that offer archery competitions, including the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) and the National Field Archery Association (NFAA). These organizations offer a variety of competitions and events for archers of all skill levels, from beginners to experts.

Whether you are a seasoned archer or just starting out, competitive archery can be a fun and challenging way to test your skills and improve your accuracy. So why not give it a try? You may just find that you have a knack for hitting the bullseye!
